Behold the Tangents....

My Fellow Inmates,


Welcome back. It’s nice to see that the site is back up and that the server fire did not take us back to square one (Honestly I has all my fingers crossed that Rebel had the site backed up, figured he did, but there was still some nerves.)


Well Asylum has now moved to the new place… That’s right; today we bit the bullet and just did it. The projects stacked before us seem a bit daunting at the moment, but tybound up in Vancouver has offered to come down from time to time so I can work out any of my growing frustrations. J


The Playroom has begun to make a few small changes as work begins down there. Personally it’s very very low on the priority cart of things that need to be done so it may take a while. WetsuitJay is kind of leaving me to my devices as he knows I wish to get it done first… but I think I will live without a working space for a bit. I have all the time in the world after we get around to it to make peoples lives miserable for my own enjoyment.


Friday was an ordeal enough just getting my bedroom even set up and enough to sleep in…


Oh, speaking of, and you can verify this online to make sure I am not just blowing smoke up your ass… Friday was the first night I got to sleep on my $10,000.00 Mattress… Yup you read that right… now before you try to figure out what exactly the fuck is wrong with me, let me tell you the story… and no I didn’t spend 10,000.00 on it.


The Mattress set is called The Stearns and Foster Golden Elegance. It’s a California King.


WetsuitJay and I were browsing the mattress stores looking for new beds… You see we sleep apart. I blame the fact that he needs a hard mattress and I need a cloud to sleep on… He blames the fact that I snore like a two dollar whore on Sunday… I think he is smoking crack, as I have never heard myself snore… perhaps he is just jealous of my new bed…


Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled program…


As I was saying, we were in the mattress store, and I had to keep myself on a bit of a budget. I really wanted something very nice but never could afford it. Well we walked into a mattress depot on Memorial Day, and they had this mattress that had been slashed in price many times… The guy said “At this point if someone gave me 700.00 for it, they could have it.”


I said “Sold!”


The reason he would do this? The mattress its self weighs 600 lbs before the box spring is even entered in to the equation. They said they did not want to move it again…

I will say this; I have not had as restful of a nights sleep in so long. I have finally realized the difference between a good mattress and a bad one… no comparison…


Speaking of beds… I watched a video on here yesterday from SPAZZ… He has a waterbed he has turned in to a Vac-rack… I so need one of these. Perhaps if I am real nice to him he will show me how he made it…. Then again if he ever makes it out I am sure I can get the info from him one way or the other… I tend to be persuasive J


Well last night cooled off a bit and I ended up in the playroom getting some work done in there. I have all sorts of content to share… 4 videos, a new update to “This old Playspace” and so much more… I also want to talk to Rubberrebel about the possibilities of Guyzingear hosting a live playroom cam so you can watch boys currently incarcerated in the still to be built cell, or on one of the many bondage implements…


That would be quite a ways down the road though… But I think live feeds a few times a month could be a great draw for the site.


Most of the house is in boxes at the moment, and there is more stuff to buy than either of us have money for at this time. Projects are stacking up, and the kitchen is still gutted pending the new floor to be installed, the cabinets to be painted, and the counters to be tiled…. So, this means our Kitchen is now a folding table in the downstairs laundry room with a Microwave and a toaster oven on it… Tres chic!


Something else… and yes, I know a television show addiction is not whole heartedly a good thing, but there is a show on TV right now that Asylum has a tie to one of the contestants and I must share.


The Show is America’s got Talent…


The singer, and you can Google her, is Kari Callin… She came from Seattle to audition for the show. The internet is calling her America’s Susan Boyle (Google this too if you have never heard of her, watch her audition, it’s an amazing Vid)…


My ex and I used to sing Karaoke with Kari back in my bar Twinkie days many many years ago… Trust me you do not want to hear Asylum sing, this was fueled by top shelf alcohol and good drugs, many many lifetimes ago…


Kari was born with a facial deformity and an amazing voice. This mix has been like oil and water her whole life; Like a 2000.00 stereo system in an AMC Gremlin, everyone only sees the car…


Kari stepped on stage for her audition and wowed. She was invited to Las Vegas, and in a chickenshit move she was sent home without even an explanation, just told she was not up to par with the other contestants. It appeared that they did not have the balls to even talk to her and be honest…

I will give them one thing; the contestant pool this year has some amazing singers. To actually reach that point and be pulled aside and talked to, like most the other 160 acts were., and told in comparison we are really sorry but there is a lot of stronger acts this year… well that is one thing. To send her home without even an explanation after they allowed her to tell the world her story and her struggles with her deformity… They did not have the balls to tell her no themselves, they just sent her packing…


Normally I would be furious about this. You don’t piss on people I know like that. But at the end of the last episode aired, in typical hype fashion they had a “phone call” from Simon Cowell saying there was a problem about a choice… I will bet that Kari is coming back.


I haven’t spoken to her in years, and I would bet a dime to a dollar that she has no Idea who I am anymore, another face in a bar from ten years ago… and that is fine… She is a powerhouse. Mariah Carey she is not, But I could give a shit about Mariah. Never once did I see Kari miss a song she preformed. To hear her sing “You ought to know” From Alanis or “Thank you” Also from Alanis… The sheer power of emotion…


I do not hook myself on shows, I don’t have time, but these people have only seen a small part of what she can do. Let her make or break upon her own merits… If they miss this opportunity, they have lost me as a viewer…


Pure chickenshit…


With that visiting time is over and the guards grow antsy…

Take care, and what ever you do don't scream too loud, others are trying to sleep
